    Since the Q4 update I've been having some flickering on certain track and car combinations on the left eye of my headset.

    I've an HP Reverb G2. Online on Facebook it's also been reported on other headsets (Pimax).

    My flickering happens on the Porsche Cayman GT4 (mod) at Croft and also Hockenheim.

    Others have also reported the issue on the S397 Porsche Cup car.

    Some other cars like the new Vanwall are also experiencing this. It has been known for several months at least, I'm not aware of any announcement saying it has been fixed yet.

    Like you I only drive in VR so this is a bit of a disappointment.

    Hopefully the developers can get to the bottom of the issue for us all.

    If it helps others out and any devs looking at this
    If you drive the Vanwall in a practise session and select zero AI, the blinks vanish completely and it’s like the bug never existed.
    I’ve completed five laps at S397 Le Mans 2022 and S397 Bahrain GP and not one single blink in my left lens over those respective ten laps.
    As soon as I add Vanwall AI, I get blinks in the left lens at Bahrain GP from lap 3 of a practise session and immediately after the green flag if I do a race at Bahrain GP.
    At least us VR uses can at least hot lap the Vanwall now until they bring out a fix.

    When I get time over the weekend I'll see if the flickering I've been experiencing is also AI related.

    I too get the flickering in the left eye in the Vanwall. It only happens when I race against other Vanwall and they cross the finish line.

    Another thing I noticed is the scale is different in the Vanwall vs the btcc bmw. When I look at my shoulder in VR in the Vanwall the shoulder is smaller than it is in the BMW. In the BMW the shoulder is too big.
